Bath Junkie's Hendersonville and Nashville branches welcome crafty visitors who aim to create their own customized bath products without welding together bathtubs or sewing shower curtains into tuxedo capes. Bath Junkie's array of body washes, scented sprays, bath crystals, pet pampering products, household cleansers, and lotions are customizable by tint or scent—including dozens of fruit, floral and botanical fragrances.

Every product is suitable for sensitive skin and almost always paraben- and SLS-free.
Bath Junkie's expert staff members are not only glamour alchemists, but also beauty boxers who know how to knock out unattractiveness and sweep it from the ring like clipped hair on a barber's floor. Like a grizzled trainer brimming with hope, aphorisms, and puke-inducing training tips, the staff will help you find your perfect face and body gloves like a heavyweight hitter his ideal pummeling mits.
- Scrubs, lotions, hand washes, body mists, and more can be customized to individual specifications—and tested out over the store’s basin sinks—with a selection of essential oils ranging from common citrus and floral scents to unusual aromas like dirt or Chardonnay. – Randi Eichenbaum, New York
- You pick a base product (a body scrub, lotion, bath oil, or shower gel) and then go crazy customizing it. You get to pick from 15 different tints, then choose from over 200 different scents, and they blend it up for you like Home Depot blends paint. – Kayleigh Donahue, Allure
